The Lomo Rules
The Lomographic Society developed the 10 Golden Rules of Lomography which enable you develop a great sense for taking lomographs whatever the situation.
If you don't like to follow rules then go ahead and find your own Lomo style.

10 Golden Rules Of Lomo

  1. Take your Lomo everywhere you go
    This I always do along with an extra roll of film.
  2. Use it anytime - day and night
  3. Lomography is not an interference with your life but a part of it
    It will soon feel natural to take Lomographs of everything.
  4. Get as close as possible to the objects of you lomographic desire
    I still don't get this right half the time.
  5. Don't think
    Once you start thinking about composition, the unexpected qualities start to go.
  6. Be fast
    As fast as you can take you camera from your pocket. For instant reaction, use the supplied wrist strap.
  7. You don't have to know beforehand what is on your film
  8. Nor afterwards
    You will figure it out eventually.
  9. Try the shot from the hip
    Or from the ground.
  10. Don't worry about (golden) rules
    Be unique and find your own way.
